Hello, Nancy!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:


2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

File:Temple VI Foundry Mark.JPG[edit]

Hi Nancy, I have removed your request to speedy delete this file as I do not see this as a copyright violation because the depicted foundry mark is in my opinion ineligible for copyright. Speedy deletions are reserved for clear-cut cases. In all other cases, a regular deletion request has to be opened. Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 19:09, 4 December 2009 (UTC)
